(KSL News) -- Plans to build a reservoir in Southern Utah could put historical rock art under water.
The plans are part of a federal land bill that would transfer land rights around the Fort Pearce wash to the Washington County Conservancy District.
Supporters of the plan say the resevoir would provide more flood control than storage.
Critics point out the current plan would destroy pioneer graffitti, American Indian petroglyphs and fossils.
The bill is scheduled to go before Congress in mid-November.
